Ban on consumer ads could make pharma's digital shortcomings more costly

The American Medical Association (AMA), a powerful lobby that represents more than 200,000 doctors and medical students in the United States, is calling for a ban on direct-to-consumer ads that pitch prescription drugs and medical devices. 

Noting that the US is one of only two countries in the world that allow such ads, the AMA says that "direct-to-consumer advertising...inflates demand for new and more expensive drugs, even when these drugs may not be appropriate."

Stakeholders: when they just don't get it

Stakeholders, who needs them? Well, me! I need them, and if you do too I have some advice for you about how to survive the more difficult relationships.

To give some context, I recently found myself having a debate with a friend over the way in which people commicate with one another.

“It’s what you say,” she said, pointedly. “That’s all that matters.” 

I was disagreeing with her wholeheartedly because I’ve learned that it’s not just what you say, but also very much the way that you say it as well.

You see, in my job, I believe you not only need to communicate truthfully, but also effectively. It’s pointless making rubbish up and then 'selling' it to someone.

The digital classroom: how tech has changed the way we learn

Following a Forbes piece in which a teacher proclaims he avoids turning a computer on during class time, and that face-to-face is key I thought I’d explain why all that is wrong.

Below are five examples of technology or digital in the classroom that really make life easier for both the teacher and student.

Helping fund a non-profit: the digital donation funnel

When it comes to generating donations we all know that there is more to digital fundraising than simply broadcasting to your supporters.

It’s important to understand who the audience is, whether they likely to convert into volunteers and/or financial supporters and what the best method is of communicating with each stakeholder group to get the best return on resources.

Adestra 2013 Subject Line Report

152 killer keywords for email subject lines (and 137 crappy ones)

We had a hunch that word choice in email subject lines have a strong effect on response rates.  So, we tested 287 keywords across a sample of 2.2bn emails to see which work, and which don’t. 

Why? Because President Obama has done more for email marketing than any world leader in the history of mankind. How? By focusing on subject line testing, his digital team optimised their donation campaigns to generate hundreds of millions of dollars online.

Despite Obama’s best efforts, most marketers still view email marketing as the Bluth Company’s Banana Stand of Arrested Development fame: a more boring and less sexy marketing channel than pretty much anything else imaginable. 

But – and never forget this – there’s always money in the banana stand! There is great power in optimising subject lines.

In case you missed my presentations at MarketingWeekLive last week, you can find out more about our findings after the jump.

Report: Loyalty programs don't always breed loyalty in Australia

Australian consumers buy more from retailers with loyalty programs, and are more likely to choose a brand with a loyalty program, but this doesn’t mean they will be more loyal, according to a new report. 

The For love or money? 2013 consumer study into Australian loyalty programs report, commissioned by strategic marketing company Directivity and digital agency Citrus, surveyed over 1,000 consumers in February 2013 to see how Australians feel towards loyalty programs. 

And, the findings highlighted that while loyalty programs definitely influence buyer behaviour, they don’t always equal customer loyalty.
